Over the past six decades, Ghabbour Auto has thrived under the leadership of one of Egypt’s visionary business families, transforming itself from a family operation into a leading regional automotive producer and distributor, guided by world-class executives with proven track records locally, regionally and internationally.
The Ghabbour Auto story began in the 1940s, when Sadek and Kamal Ghabbour started a family-run trading business. The brothers’ firm, which was soon incorporated as Ghabbour Brothers, had interests across a number a business lines, including automotive-related products, construction materials, home appliances and electronics.
Egypt’s open-door policy during the 1970s presented an opportunity to bring international expertise to the Egyptian automotive market, and Ghabbour Brothers began securing licenses and representations from the world’s premier suppliers. The business expanded rapidly throughout the 1980s and 1990s, growing sales and streamlining operations through increased specialization, until it reached its current form as one of Egypt’s leading corporations.
In six decades of business, Ghabbour Auto has harnessed the good and weathered the bad. The company has flourished with a commitment to a single vision: A belief that Egypt and the region present great potential. In carrying out this vision, Ghabbour Auto has remained committed to offering the highest quality products and services with the best prices, creating job opportunities and improving labor skills in its home market and abroad.
Today, Ghabbour Auto is a leading automotive assembler, manufacturer and distributor in North Africa and the Middle East, and since 2007 has been listed on the Egyptian Exchange (EGX). The company has direct sales presences in Egypt and Iraq and is now expanding to other MENA nations.
